Cops seek homeless man

Friday, May 30 2014

Superintendent Imraj Balram, who has been appointed by Acting Police Commissioner Stephen Williams to investigate the display of placards with racist slurs outside the Parliament Building last Friday, yesterday selected a three-man team, including a sergeant and two constables from the Port-of-Spain Division, to assist him.

Newsday understands Balram has applied to the CCTV Unit based at the National Operations Center (NOC) at Knowsley, Queen’s Park West, Port-of-Spain to view footage from Woodford Square to identify the person or persons who contracted a group of homeless men to carry the placards. The officers are to also view CCTV footage from outside the Parliament Building at the Port-of- Spain Waterfront. The team of officers were to locate Norbert Cupid, a homeless man at Woodford Square, who admitted in a CNC3 interview that he and other homeless men were paid $50 each to wear red jerseys and display the placards. He said he was not racist but agreed to do it because he was hungry and saw this as an opportunity to collect some quick cash to feed himself. He was remorseful for his actions.
